Back on the road after two days in Colmar, we visited a few more villages on our way north to Niederbronn-les-Bains, in Bas-Rhin, where we would stay for the next two weeks. The timing couldn’t have been better: while the preceding week and a half of traveling had been a lot of fun, we were ready to kick back and relax, swim and write and just be for a while.
We spent the first two days just hanging out by the pool, then explored the town of Niederbronn, which is far bigger than we expected. A driving tour of some typical villages, as recommended by the tourist office, was interesting, and we also did a dégustation of some excellent beers at a brasserie in Oberbach.
A sixth call to the lost and found in Annecy bore fruit – my husband’s wallet had been returned, with credit cards, driver’s license, and 175 euros! Since we can’t remember exactly how much was in it, we’re not sure whether the good Samaritan who turned it in took something for his trouble, but even if he did, he left quite a bit, and we’re grateful for that.
